Demonetisation was, in effect, regime change

A functional democracy has checks and balances to limit the arbitrary use of state power.

Each one of those - in-party decision-making, Parliamentary process, bureaucratic caution, judiciary, press, civil society - failed.

That was the beginning of the unwinding of Indian democracy.

Yesterday I looked at my timeline or feed in #fediverse it looked as usual. Few contents and few notifications. Today morning woke up and boom..

This reminds me of a quote by comrade Rosa Luxembourg, “Those who do not move, will not notice their chains.” I see so many people moving here because they have noticed their chains.

This is never contemplated under this Constitution. Which is why this kind of matter has never come before this court.

It is today, Kashmir. Tomorrow it could be Nagaland.

State has to be citizen's benefactor. All restrictions on rights have to be for citizens' benefits. Cannot be abrogative of the rights.
